The Dade County Lady Wolverine basketball team played a pair of region games last week and came away with big wins.

On Tuesday night the Lady Wolverines hosted the Chattooga Lady Indians and put an end to any hopes the visitors had of victory early in the game.

The Lady Wolverines burned the nets for 26 first quarter points to take a commanding 26-7 lead and never looked back.

By the end of the first half the Lady Wolverines were up 43-20.

The second half was no different as the Lady Wolverines outscored the visitors 15-13 in the third quarter and 12-7 in the fourth as Coach Randy Watson got everyone in on the action.

The 70-40 win improved the Lady Wolverines region record to 3-2.

Erika Woodfin led the Lady Wolverines with 21 points and Tori Gass added 14 with each hitting four three point shots.

On Friday night the Lady Wolverines traveled to Pepperell to take on the Lady Dragons.

This was a much more competitive game for the Lady Wolverines, especially for the first three quarters.

The Lady Wolverines ended the first quarter up one, 14-13.

The second quarter was much the same as the two teams traded baskets and at the end of the first half the Lady Wolverines held a slim 27-24 lead.

The third quarter offered much of the same as both teams scored 13 points and the Lady Wolverines were up 40-37 heading into the final eight minutes.

The Lady Wolverines found their range in the fourth quarter and scored 23 points to pull away from the host Lady Dragons and claim a big 63-47 road win.

Woodfin again led the Lady Wolverines with 24 points, hitting 4 three point shots in the process. Ansley Chilton scored 15 and Abby Bradford scored eight.

This week the Lady Wolverines have a pair of region games at home against Coosa on Tuesday and Calhoun on Friday.

Friday night’s game against the Lady Yellow Jackets of Calhoun is a key region game. The Yellow Jackets are currently atop the region standings with a 5-0 mark while the Lady Wolverines are currently third with a 4-2 mark.

Also on Friday night the State Championship banner for the Lady Wolverine softball team will be presented at halftime of the Wolverines game.
